Characters Edit

Summary Edit

Ken Kaneki awakens in what appears to be a shrine, surrounded by a vast ocean of water and rows of gates. Baffled, he wonders where Touka Kirishima is, and begins wandering throughout the halls of the shrine, confused. He begins calling her name and asking if anyone is there. He slowly recalls having returned to the Goat headquarters and battling the CCG. With some struggle, he remembers having been defeated by Juuzou Suzuya, and having devoured the Oggai afterwards. However, he then remembers having been engulfed by something massive, and his memory fails him.

Kaneki panics as he wonders whether he's awake, asleep, or even dead. Teary eyed, he runs outside and jumps into the water, wading but soon having to swim. He claims that he has to go back. As he swims through the gates, massive eyes underneath the surface of the water quietly watch him.

Being pushed back by the waves, he dives underwater, only to see countless corpses; horrified, he resurfaces. However, to his shock, he sees Rize Kamishiro sitting upon a pillar; she asks him where he's going, calling him a murderer.

Trivia Edit

  • Kaneki's mental environment is based on Itsukushima Shrine, famous for its floating torii gates. The shrine is considered one of Japan's National Treasures, and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
